If you're lucky, you MIGHT shave 7-10 off both. Video cards are hard to cool with air cooling, you start to see real results with watercooling/ phase change.

some of the reviews ive read have shown significant results, but anything from 10-20 i guess would be good. Anything to get out of the 70's hehe

Have you ever tried Doom 3 @ 425 core on air cooling?
Um, not really. The NV 5 IS designed to provide much better cooling than stock, and was proven to do so on mine, where it lowered my load temps by close to 20C. My concern has been more on the design flaw mentioned above and not as much on the performance of the product.

Not sure what your edit means, I can run Doom at 425 on my air cooling no problem

Then my 6800GT must be a lemmon. Ah well, gives me a reason for a 7800gt/x1800xl

Hey 003, what are you idle temps using the Zalman. And what are your load temps for games like doom3,FEAR etc?

idle, about 50C, but I think I applied the AS5 wrong, because all the reviews seem to have 45C and under for idle, I'm just to lazy to re apply it. Even if I applied it correctly, I would not be a good person to ask, because there is something wrong with my 6800gt.
